Introduction

For whatever reason you may get multiple game profiles for the same game.  If you multiple box you usually have different addons for each account and this will help you manage each one separately.  However, if the reason you have two or more is because of something like reinstalling the game or moving it to a new drive you may not want the extra profile lurking about in your Curse Client.

For assistance with Game Profiles check this guide.

How to Get Rid of the Extra Profiles

You are going to want to hide the extra profiles so that the Curse Client doesn't manage them any more.

  1. Locate the extra Game Profile you want to remove.  In this case it's an extra World of Warcraft profile.
